Event Description

This event already occurred.  Enjoy the recording!


Scott K. Johnson was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April of 1980. He has been writing about his struggles and successes with diabetes since late 2004. Currently blogging at Scott's Diabetes (, working as the Communications Lead, USA for mySugr, and contributing to many other diabetes related projects, Scott stays busy connecting with others living with diabetes. Scott works full time as a freelance writer and diabetes consultant, and says, "I'm your average guy living with type 1 diabetes. I don't have it all figured out, and sharing my struggles with diabetes helps by showing people that it is okay to still be trying to get it right, even after nearly 35 years." Scott lives with his family near the Minneapolis, MN area.

Great Q, Lloyd! Will do!

Comment by Lloyd on March 19, 2014 at 4:35pm

I'll type my question early, because I'll be on an iPad and it is kinda hard to watch and do text.

Scott, You have talked about how you participate in a lot of basketball. I'm wondering what works for you to manage your glucose for that? Different basal rates for basketball days? Temp Basal? Do you handle it with carbs (I know you must burn huge amounts of glucose).
-Lloyd Mann

I guess I had better RSVP, eh? :-) Thanks, all! I'm excited for this!

Thanks Emily. I won't be able to attend. It's right near the end of my work day. :-(

Khürt... I wish it was that easy!!  The Ning platform does not have a way for me to post the time in different time zones, or have any form of native time zone converter.  I include the link to Worldclock in each post so folks can use that platform to compare 1:00 pacific time to their own time zone and figure out what time it is in their area.  It's an inelegant work-around.  

Since you are on the east coast, this event will be 4-4:30pm your time (ET is 3 hours later than PT).

Isn't there some function of tudiabetes to present the times in the local time zone of the person logged in. The "What time is this where you are?" link jump off to a world clock. Then what? What is 1-1:30pm PST where I live?
